The heat is on when Brooklyn BBQ Chef Shannon Ambrosio goes head-to-head against Southern pitmasters on  Big Bad BBQ Battle. If you missed it on Sunday, you can watch it again this Thursday, June 4 at 8pm ET. He and his boys travel to Fort Worth, Texas, for a smoked brisket cook-off against Cousins Bar-B-Q, then to Shreveport, La., to take on Hickory Stick for a pulled pork sandwich throwdown. With some twists on the classics — including going Italian for one dish — it's an unforgettable battle.

Find out if Shannon and his brother, Big Rich, go up in smoke during the Southern competition. No matter who wins, this will start a big beef between New York City and the South.
